The drama “Descendants of the Sun,” the winner of the 52nd Baeksang Arts Awards which has gained widespread popularity not only in South Korea but also across Asia, has been made into a novel.

The four characters show love that overcomes the most extreme situations and goes beyond the limits of the world. The faithfulness of soldiers who protect the country and the humane efforts of doctors who save lives are also one of the attractive features of “Descendants of the Sun.”
